Mediterranean style houses
In ISOLANA, the building of four houses has been built,here and there, in commodious site. Spanish style tiled roof, the wall finished up by trowel hand work, the windows of decorated by iron works, we designed ISOLANA ourself, with our imagination about rural small town on the shore of Mediterranean.
When you could like the building of unique atmosphere, we wish to express our appreciation.
Mt. Fuji is a mysterious mountain where the expression is variously changed at time and the season. The north shore of the lake where ISOLANA is located is seen in the direction where the lake and Mt. Fuji are the same.
The surface of the water in the lake becomes a mirror, the shape of Mt. Fuji will be projected, and it becomes the Double Fuji(we call the phenomenon "SAKASA-FUJI").
"Diamond-Fuji" where the sun sets to the top of the mountain. "BENI-Fuji" where the ray of sun dyes the surface of a mountain to red at daybreak.
We Japanese sincerely love Mt. Fuji. You will sympathize with this feelings by experiencing that phenomenon.
About two hours from Tokyo, you will arrive at Lake Yamanakako. Yamanakako is a resort with conserved nature, and a plateau area which altitude is 1000m.
The Lake is the largest of the Fuji Five Lakes, and it is nearest from Mt. Fuji. Not only scenery in Mt. Fuji but also it is a place where traditional culture of Japan is felt.
For example, there are some Shinto Shrines, with the worship to the volcano as a god. And it is near from Oshino-Hakkai known by the brand-name spring water. And there are many trekking courses and a cycling road, too.
Walk 250m from ISOLANA, and you can reach the lake side. Please enjoy your Yamanakako staying, we will assist.
There is a wide garden in ISOLANA, various flowers bloom every season. It is invited to the smell of the flower, a lot of butterflies come, it flutters and flies gracefully.
In winter,a lot of wild birds visit the garden, and eyes of everybody would be amused. There is a bench decorated with the mosaic tile in the center of the garden. This bench is a viewing point for Mt. Fuji.
The dinner serves the homemade cuisine of the Mediterranean style in the half course. We had been researchers of the R & D section, in a big dairy product company. With making the best use of that experience, and by giving my whole heart, I make a handmade cuisine.
Breakfast serves an American breakfast. When you could like our cuisine, we wish to express our appreciation.
